    You're a nearly invisible gamete, indistiguishable from a droplet of snot.
    Therefore you're not entitled to take over my wife's body against her will.
    A gamete is mature haploid germ cell: in humans, a sperm or an egg.

    It is not a zygote or a blastula or an embryo or a fetus or a person. Might possibly join with another cell to become a zygote which would then, under the correct conditions become a blastula which, under the right conditions could become an embryo which could, under the right conditions, become a fetus which could, under the right conditions be born.

    But almost all gametes are flushed down toilets or otherwise expelled from the body.

    A gamete is very much distinguishable from a droplet of snot, which is many, many times larger and incapable of joining with another gamete and under the correct circumstances, develop into a complete vertebrate organism.

    Wut? No.
    Try again.
    Gametes (and blastocysts) do not manifest genitalia (surely a big disappointment for the religious establishment's fixations on sex).

    Right - I was thinking about another post above wondering about gametes and what kind of special Hell there is for ova and sperm. I should have said blastocyst, which at some point does very much resemble a snot particle.

    It seems then, that your reasoning dissolves once 'manifest genitalia' are able to be detected.

    Sorry to get pissy. But people are talking about very specific things without understanding what those things are.

    No doubt.

    And if you kill it then calling it a parasite is a small insult.

    I have never said you have the moral authority to kill it because it is a parasite.

    People don't kill their fetuses for what the fetus will do inside them.

    They kill it for what a living child will do to their life.
    And you amplified my point that a new born baby also meets the definition of parasite, as does a severely disabled adult human who;
    lives on, or with another human in order to obtain nutrients, grow, or multiply often being dependent on, or exploiting another while giving little or nothing in return.
    Yeah.

    A rich person that makes their living off stocks, off the labor of others, is a parasite too.

    Children are parasites for years after they are born.

    The rich owner of capital thinks they are the one providing for parasites.

    Their factory, their choice.
    Don't tell me what to do with my ovaries factory.
    It's a ploy by men socialists to control factory owners bodies.

    What does he have without them?

    It is behavior that makes something a parasite.

    Gaining something but doing no work for it makes you a parasite.

    A parasite is something that displays parasitic behavior.

    Parasitic behavior is deriving your sustenance due to the work of some other organism.

    You're talking about "things".
    I'm talking about living humans.

    If you were talking about a person's right to smash a vase or plate in their own home, or their right to take a pair of scissors to some item of clothing in their wardrobe, you would get no objection from me. Those are "things". They can be categorised as personal property. If you want a preferential option to destroy them, I guess that's your (foolish) prerogative.

    But a human being is not a "thing" and not your personal "property".
    (WOW. LOL. Saying those words out loud sounds so old fashioned when speaking to an audience of pro-choice folks who think choice extends to choosing whether someone is a parasite or a 'thing'.)
